Story Notes:

So this is my first fanfic on MTT; I recently re-watched the Office and fell into the fanfic trap in the middle of a lockdown and a thesis!


I have always wanted season 3 to go a bit deeper into the Fancy New Beesly ways of life, and always wondered what it would be like if Pam had met some nice guy mid-season (instead of getting back with Roy); so here’s me fleshing out a little angsty story with this thought (I don’t have the entire thing panned out yet but I am a sucker for happy endings- wink wink!)

Also, I will keep alternating between Jim and Pam’s POVs!

Hope anyone who reads likes this! Here it goes.

Here's the firsr chapter, the story moving ahead a little-- hope it is making sense!

3. Chapter 2: we are moving back and forth by bottomlesschampagne [Reviews - 5] 5 (3021 words)

Thanks so much for the reveiws, you all! It is so encouraging. 

Note: I intorduce Pam's other here; I initially thought of doing this with Danny but him and Pam never really clicked for me, so I have gotten in my own figment of imagination-- but not completely.

So you can imagine this guy to be Paul Schnieder, or more specifically Mark Brendanawicz from Parks and Rec. This is only for visualisation purposes and I am not borrwing the character (so it is not a crossover); just borrowing a bit of his backstory, but that is insignificant. I just always thought he would look good with Pam/Jenna!

Thanks again for the wonderful reviews-- I will get to responding to them soon. As of now, the chapters are coming to me and I want to keep writing.

I am following the vague backdrop of the S3 episodes as the story progresses, fitting it aorund the plotline. Hope it's working well!


Set during Business School/Cocktails

So I am using the moon-bounce trope I read fanfics on here at MTT; credit due to all those wonderful writers! 

(also a little tid-bit inspired from what Jenna said about her engagement ring during CN in the podcast)
